Happy Perihelion Day (?!?)

Today, January 4, is Perihelion Day!
(at least this year)

Perihelion day occurs about two weeks after every December Solstice, and on this day, Earth’s center is approximately 91,402,500 miles from the sun’s centre.

Today our sun appears the largest in our sky as it will be for the entire year!

So to celebrate our sun, here is a bright yellow raku vase fresh from the kiln!

So let’s celebrate our big sun in the sky!

For another Sunny Yellow Vase – Check out Helios!

Helios the Sun God


    1. It certainly can! It’s currently on the dining room table and doing that very thing! 🙏

    1. It is definitely a bright and rich yellow! 🙂 Hope you are keeping well, Grace! 🙏

    1. Thank you Linda! I hope you had a great one as well and so glad you liked the vase! 🙏

  1. Color, shape, texture, cracks–everything’s perfect with these vases! They seem to glow of their own accord. Beautiful work as always! 🙂

    1. Thank you Mike! The yellow ones are especially glowing, in person even more so! 🙏 Hope you are keeping well!

    1. Thank you Julia! I hope the sun is shining brightly where you are today (it always is, just behind the clouds sometimes!)

  2. Trying to celebrate the sun…though the heavy snow clouds. Unusual for Victoria, a dump of about 6-8 inches where most people don’t have snow tires! The yellow you use is bright and cheerful. Do you do many small vases?
